    For a friend I'm helping, already looking at crown moulding and painting the walls a light tan. Any other suggestions. What about the kitchen? Already getting new faces for the lower cabinets, leave the open shelving or put up like cubbards with glass doors or inserts? Thinking about a decortative backsplash but there is the black tiles on the back. Also maybe a pot hanger above the counter where the dishwasher is. If you have suggestions with any examples of pictures it would be appreciated.

    the kitchen isn't half bad but the other room looks like some old ladies place

    i'm not any sort of interrior decorator, but i'd say get some new furniture :dunno:

    crown moldings would be ftw if your going with the oldschool theme, i'd get some striped wallpaper that matches the drapes or light colors, or maybe paint the walls red, and paint hte moldings black.. this is kinda hard...

    AC unit FTL, and all the bottles on top of the credenza needs to go somewhere else, also he should look into getting all his furniture retouched in a darker/richer varnish

    i like that kitchen..a little cluttered in the shelving but not bad over all

    i agree with XO that living room looks like it's taken out of a geriatric ward

    Kitchen isn't bad, could be decluttered a bit. Cabinets with glass doors would be an improvement, and I'd ditch the white in favour of a dusky grey kind of colour.

    Living room needs to annihilated and just start again. Not a single redeeming feature sorry.

    like others have said, i like the kitchen... maybe some new stools
    i've never seen shelving done like that, i kinda like it :big grin:
    the living room is bad.bad.
    looking at the 2 pics, i wouldn't have guessed its the same house lol
    but if your friend likes the old fashioned look then i have no suggestions because i absolutely despise it :)
